Well I am a believer of a few things. First, the Sox are still very much alive and kicking. Second, teams that rely on their farm system to produce enough talent to be serious and consistent contenders never do well. Therefore, the minor leagues, IMO, are really only valuable to deliver a handful of players to the MLB team, while the rest need to be acquired externally. The Sox's farm system has produced its fair share of MLB regulars. We have failed at filling internal gaps with external solutions.
